Eswatini vs Lesotho Predictions

This match is between two of Africa’s minnows. Eswatini are 23 matches without a win and struggle to score goals. Lesotho also lack attacking threat but have been improving in recent years and got three draws in their six AFCON qualifiers. I am tipping a narrow Lesotho win.

  • Eswatini have lost 4 of their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • Eswatini have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 matches (COSAFA Cup).
  • Eswatini have seen BTTS No in their last 6 matches against Lesotho (all competitions).

  • Lesotho have failed to score in their last 4 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Eswatini hold a 7-5 advantage across the previous 19 meetings with Lesotho with seven draws.

The sides last met in 2018 in the COSAFA Cup as Lesotho won 1-0.

Eswatini Form

Eswatini are 23 matches without a win. They were knocked out of World Cup 2022 qualification in the preliminary round and finished bottom of their Africa Cup of Nations qualification group.

After losing 2-1 on aggregate to minnows Djibouti in World Cup qualification, Eswatini lost four and drew two of their six AFCON qualifiers. A 2-0 loss in Congo was followed by a 0-0 draw against the same opponents.

They were then beaten 3-1 by Guinea-Bissau before a 1-1 draw in Senegal in their last match. Their opponents had already qualified and rested some key players.

Eswatini Injuries & Team News

Eswatini have no players based outside of the African continent in their squad.

The team’s attack will be carried by two players who plied their trade in South Africa last season. Felix Badenhorst and Justice Figareido were at TS Galaxy and will play as number ten and right winger respectively.

Lesotho Form

Lesotho are 11 matches without a victory across qualification matches and other competitions. They finished bottom of their AFCON qualification group after three draws and three defeats in six matches.

They lost 4-2 to Nigeria having led the match before a 1-0 defeat in Benin. The side then picked up two credible results with goalless draws at home against Benin and Sierra Leone.

Their last match saw a 3-0 defeat away in Nigeria to complete their failed attempt to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations next year.

Lesotho Injuries & Team News

Lesotho suffered a blow as head coach Thabo Senong resigned on the eve of the tournament to take another job.

Most of the squad are domestically based but their three top players play for South African clubs. Tshwarelo Bereng and Tumelo Khutlang will play in midfield with target man Motebang Sera leading the line.
